Artificial Horizon by Martin Thomas
Book DescriptionMartin Thomas takes the reader on a journey through a compelling study of culture, landscape and mythology. For both Aboriginal people and their colonisers, the rugged landscape of the Blue Mountains has stood as an intriguing riddle and a stimulus to the imagination. The author evokes this dramatic and bewildering landscape and leads his readers through the cultural history of the locality in order to probe the 'dreamwork of imperialism'.

Arguing About Empire, Hardback (March 2017)
Arguing about Empire explores key imperial debates between Britain and France from the age of high imperialism to the post-war era of decolonization, uncovering the part played by imperial rhetoric - its racial underpinnings, its ethical presumptions, and the world-views it enshrined.
My Mum is There, Paperback (February 2016)
It's not easy being small. Nothing is simple. Not speaking, sleeping or walking. Not counting, reading or swimming. Not even hopping or skipping or jumping! But the love of a mother is an amazing thing. With mum close by there's no need to be scared. With mum close by anything is possible.
My Dad Will Do, Paperback (February 2016)View all books by Martin Thomas
It's not easy being small. Especially not being able to reach things. Like the hook to hang a coat, a shelf to get the toys, or the pedals of a bike. Kitchen sides, the shower, and a light switch are all too high. But the love of a father is an amazing thing. With dad close by anything is possible. With dad close by nothing is out of reach.
